Callaway Summer 2012

We go to Callaway Gardens in Georgia two or three times each least once in the summer and once at Christmas.  I guess this is one of our family traditions :)

We all love it there.  It's a great place to go and unwind and get away for a short trip.  This year's summer trip was the 3rd week in May.  The weather was perfect, and we had a great time.  The girls have their favorite parts, too, just like Matt and I have our favorite parts.  Since it was so hot, we spent some time at the pool and the beach.  We took walks through the woods all day long and every evening after dinner.  We brought a soccer ball with us and Avery loved kicking it around.

Both girls loved being able to wake up and have powdered donuts for breakfast while they watched tv...what a treat!
 Avery really liked having her own double bed all to herself....again, what a treat! (at home she sleeps in a twin)
 Sweet picture of the girls together before we went out one morning.
Avery showing Ansley the way to the car so that we could go see the all the butterflies (a favorite of all of us) 
 Matt and his girls walking over one of the many bridges that wind you through the woods.
We can't wait to get back...even if it's not until Christmas to see all of the lights!
